In her personal work she uses the instruments of darkness, surrealism and photography to talk about her deepest feelings; emotions, states of mind, mind shifts and more. During the last years, Jaqueline has won several prestigious awards like an Honorable Mention in the Annual International Color Awards, some Honorable Mentions in the IPA Awards, Bronze Awards in the PX3 Annual Prix de la Photographie Paris or a Silver and Bronze Award in the MIFA Awards.
Her photographic artwork is heavily influenced by classical fine art and surrealism. But also in a world in twilight, dark and cold, as well as in science fiction. Strength and confidence. Peace and tranquillity. A great quantity of melancholy. With a bit of a gloom, sadness, mystery, and fantasy. As a means of expressing her ideas and emotions, she makes main use of the self-portrait and photomontages. In her photomontages she often tries to create disturbing, dreamy and/or futuristic worlds. Her use of black and white, lights, contrasts and elements such birds, marks her artwork work and helps to recognize her work easily. ~ jaquelinevanek.com
